This is some very powerful vocal arranging, and the guitar bit provided adds the right kind of metric iciness to it.

I can definitely hear a few different directions for this.

Thank you kindly, Admiral- the vocal compliment means a lot coming from you. I’m glad you mentioned the guitar, too. We wanted to add something to give the feel we’re going for, but not too much so we don’t influence the creative direction of potential remixes. Thanks a ton!!

Great vocal Kara — powerful, clear, driven, and like the good Admiral said, super vocal arrangement (I may just have those “la la las” stuck in my head all day…). I’m sure this will be remixed a lot!

Thank you!!! I’ll have to share your comment with Rich- the la’s were ALL HIS idea! (I do hope it gets remixed… I’d love to hear where folks could take this…)

THANK YOU so MUCH! Awww man, I bet you could do some KILLER harmonies with us! Thanks for your awesome support!

The space created in the mix is obviously just begging for some remixing but the piece works so well as it is.

Great vocal work!

Thank you, Murat! If you work with it, I’d love to hear what you create! Your music style is very distinct- I hold it in extremely high regard. Thanks again!

I like it just the way it is outlined and spacious. However like a child with too many crayons I’ll probably colour it in, hopefully not too garishly.

Thanks!! I’m glad you like how it’s outlined- we left the same space we utilized in our mix. Oh, I doubt it’s possible (the garishly part… great word, though)!

every time i heard “we could leave tonight” in my humble mix (and in every other mix too) I got powerful waves of goosebumps!! It’s a very easy sentence, but the meaning is huge, yes perhaps only in my imaginative brain :D congrats to OSTrich too for his great voice!

It’s powerful to me, too. :) I think it’s the idea and truth that change is possible. When I wrote it, I was reminding myself of that. It sounds like you’re working on a mix? I look forward to hearing it!

I think this is top shelf - All the way! Looking forward to hearing the remixes this generates.

This track so captivating, I can´t get it out of my ears and I´m afraid this is the soundtrack for my pending midlife crisis getaway
permalink   Kara Square Sat, Jul 21, 2012 @ 8:53 AM
Thank you, Wired! I’m thrilled that you dig it so… I’m more at the “quarter-life crisis” stage (31), but I definitely feel ya’! When I sing “We’ll be okay”, I’m really cheering us all on… :)
permalink   Wired Ant Sun, Jul 22, 2012 @ 2:31 PM
Indeed it is your “We´ll be okay” that is the trigger to start leaving needless trouble!
We should talk about this in 19 years when the quarter will have become a half :)

Very creative! Love it.

I also loved this and decided to do a simple remix of this too
permalink   Kara Square Thu, Oct 18, 2012 @ 9:06 AM
Thanks again! Your remix is really cool- listening now. Very neat, tension-building intro. Thanks a ton!

Posting a trackback was definitely cool… If you want to get more involved in ccMixter, I recommend posting the songs directly here so people don’t have to leave the site to listen. This also makes it so the songs will be on your profile page and show up in the main remix page (the tab above). You can upload your remix by clicking on “Submit Files” under the Artists heading on the left side of the site. Send me a message if you have any problems (I happen to be part of the Admin team). Here’s a couple other songs you might dig- Build, Truth and Fact, DJ Death… Thanks again!
